CFP: North Atlantic Worlds

A Joint CAIS/SSHORE Conference

North Atlantic Worlds is a joint meeting of the Canadian Association for Irish Studies (CAIS) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Oceans Research and Education network (SSHORE), organized by Danine Farquharson (Memorial University) and Julia M. Wright (Dalhousie University).

The organizers welcome submissions on “North Atlantic Worlds.” We take “worlds” broadly, to consider the Atlantic as a diverse space of undersea worlds and coastal worlds, a bridge between the “Old” and “New” worlds, diasporic worlds and territorial worlds, utopian and dystopian worlds, past worlds and future worlds. We are open to proposals from any discipline in the Social Sciences or Humanities, and from such fields as ocean studies, Indigenous studies, Irish studies, environmental studies, and/or transatlantic studies.

The conference dates overlap with that of the International Small Island Studies Association’s meeting, also being held in St. John’s, and we expect to have some joint panels and events.
